An untidy an unclean venue, with poor service, inconsistent food, promised ingredients often omitted from dishes, and no management in sight when it's most needed. Don't trust that your booking is secure either. Also they don't stock several sugar-free option mixers, and can't be bothered to change that upon request. On the whole it is a tragic waste of an...

I have been to Pastis a number of times and have always had a wonderful experience. With the relaxed environment and excellent efficient service I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to have a quiet relaxed meal in an inviting environment. The food has always been of an amazing quality with servings that are more generous than many other restaurants... More

Took a drive through Constantia and tried Pastis for Sunday lunch. It looked inviting from far with many people seated outside. Unfortunately the place is really run down and dirty. Exposed electrical cables all over the show and not sure how they survived any inspections. Waitress was ok but did tell/warn us that there is a big table order waiting... More

Dear Andre Thank you for your candid feedback. We have escalated some areas that you have mentioned for Maintenance to attend to. Recent feedback on our new menu has prompted us to improve the menu by discontinuing the inconsistent Rib-Eye and replacing it with a tender & tasty Sirloin steak. Scallops have also been discontinued due to irregular supply and... More

Went for a late lunch. Opted for the special springbok shanks. Really bad overcooked, glutinous gravy. Sent them back & changed my order to a carpaccio which sounded great on the menu, but had zero truffle oil as advertised. Disappointing food generally, no management in sight, chef argued the point & forgot to take shanks off the bill. Place needs... More

Pastis is one of those restaurants that you feel comfortable to go to often. Love the music and relaxed atmosphere. The menu has recently changed and I love the new exciting options like the Pulled Pork Burger - yummy.

I agree with John L This has seen a lot of changes to chefs and no doubt owners. Needs a huge upgrade in in and outdoors. 3to4 years ago food was good now expensive and dreadful. Will not go back until we some changes.Service shocking.

Had dinner here on Friday night and it was lovely. Tracey looked after us very well, food was excellent, great ambience with live music, all round a wonderful and enjoyable evening. Sunday morning breakfast was a dog show. Firstly the juicer is broken, which means NO juice. Not even a bottle for back up or a can of minute maid.... More

Had a really enjoyable meal, washed down with very good house wine, and fortunate enough to visit on a night with a good band playing. Very enjoyable night

The service is fine, the location is very good. Lots of parking. The food is almost walkways dreadful though. Occasionally it is ok. The decor seats tables canvas roof flowers floor etc are old outdated and dirty. What a shame such a good location has been ruined. It survives I think on booze sales via a section where people can... More
